Are there any dodge experts out there? Three days ago I bought a
dodge intrepid from my father in law. Yesterday I was driving and I
started hearing a sound like something draging of the car. So I drove
about a mile to the next exit of the interstate. Once I got off the
interstate the dragging sound increased. About a have a mile from the
nearest service station I notice the smell of antifreeze. Once I got
to the service station and pop the hood there was antifreeze leaking
from the rear of the engine. At that time I thought that one of the
heat core belts had blown. After speaking the the gas station
attendent about keeping it the over night, he told me to move it
around to the back of the shop. When I hoped in it and started it
there was a loud “bam,bam,bam,bam” coming from what sounded like the
engine. So I shut it off and push it the rest of the way. After that
I had it towed to a mechanic who told me the engine was junk. I took
a while at the mechanics I check the oil and it was completely dry,
After that I check the undercarrige for oil and found nothing
suubstaintal. My question is could a car drive around town for a few
day with out any oil or do you thing the mechanic is trying to screw
me, or could it be the transmission?

Sounds like the only person that screwed you was your father in law.
Sold you a car and didn’t even bother to make sure it had oil in it.
From your description, your motor is blown, and you can probably
blame it on lack of oil, simple enough.
